Megan Thee Stallion claims the Grammys aren’t rigged
The ‘Good News’ rapper doesn’t believe the Grammy Awards are fixed.
Last night (March 14), Megan Thee Stallion won big at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards ceremony, taking home three of the four awards for which she was nominated. Though many were excited to see the Houston star relish in the excitement of her first Grammy wins, snubs in other categories incited a recurring conversation about the Recording Academy’s selection process behind the nominees and winners of the award show.
During a post-Grammy interview, the “Body” emcee was asked whether she expected to win, and she responded, simultaneously addressing allegations that the award show was fixed. “I didn’t know shit,” she told TMZ. “The Grammys ain’t rigged. Bitch, you win some, you lose some.”
Megan’s night at the Grammy Awards consisted of monumental moments, including her win for Best New Artist, which made her the first woman rapper to take home the award since Lauryn Hill’s win in 1999.
Additionally, her song “Savage Remix” helped her secure two wins for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song, which she accepted alongside Beyoncé. “I am so proud of you,” the Black is King star told Megan. “I just want to quickly give my love to Megan. I have so much respect for you. I am honored that you asked me to be apart of this song.”
Megan also took the stage to entertain viewers with hits “Body” and “Savage Remix” before joining Cardi B in their first live performance of “WAP.”
While the Good News rapper had a great experience at the Grammy Awards, several artists have denounced the annual event following years of controversial wins and Grammy snubs. The Weeknd, for example, said he is boycotting the show after he received zero nods from the Recording Academy. More recently, Lil Wayne shared his thoughts on music’s biggest night, tweeting, “Fuk the Grammys.”
